Smallwood is the founder and creator of Snack Paintings- pictures of childhood snacks and traditional Newfoundland staples. The artist grew up in St. John’s and surrounding area and moved to Toronto over eight years ago. No matter where she roamed, she was always involved with art. “I’ve painted my entire life. Growing up I always said I wanted to be an artist. I’ve used many different mediums but watercolor stole my heart. It’s actually quite difficult getting the perfect colours and if you mess the wash up,…

Bumping into the musicians at a kid’s birthday party was the perfect opportunity to secure a spot with the busy parents of two. Unfortunately, juggling their own kids’ schedules…
